Start of Bluetooth® SMART Module Mass Production —LBCA1ZZVZE—

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. will mass-produce a Bluetooth® SMART* module that supports the Bluetooth® low-energy standard, starting from June. This product will be exhibited within the Texas Instruments booth at "Wireless Japan 2012, " which will be held at Tokyo Big Site from May 30.

Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) is an ultra-low power communication technology that enables months to years of operation with a button battery. Widespread application is expected in various fields such as health management, fitness and home networks. In addition, BLE has also been adopted as a communication method by the Continua® Health Alliance, a non-profit organization of leading healthcare and technology industry companies.

BLE is being successively adopted for use in mobile terminals such as smartphones and tablet terminals, and expectations are increasing for BLE as a means of seamlessly connecting mobile terminals with health management devices such as blood pressure meters and bathroom scales, and battery-driven devices such as wristwatches and compact sensors.

For example, data can be collected and managed between mobile terminals and wireless health devices equipped with BLE, enabling health management anytime, anywhere. In addition, devices connected to smartphones and other applications are also expected to expand in the future.

To meet these market needs, Murata has worked to develop a Bluetooth® SMART module that supports the Bluetooth® low-energy standard, and will start mass production from June of this year.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs. The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs. Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these p

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications. The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications. “We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner E


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection. The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
